Pearson correlation revealed a relationship between number of screen hours, (R value= .330 and P value=.029) number of gadgets (R value=.365 and P value= .015) and while Fisher exact test revealed an association between room (Fisher exact value= 46.18 and P value= .009) and sleep quality. The study documented a statistically significant association between screen hours, number of gadgets as well as the room condition, and poor sleep quality among allied health college students.
